SOLD.

Bring a trailer, It's not towable
. Plus, there are too many parts for this thing to haul even if it was.
My route for outdoor adventure travel has changed and I hate to see this little gem waste away. Somebody please come make it complete and use it. Asking price is $675.00 firm. I've no interest in parting it out. All parts for one money. I may consider a trade of equal, to me, value. Make me an offer.

The trailer has a 3500lb Dexter axle (no brakes) with 6 lug Toyota / GM bolt circle with new Monroe-matic shocks and lower shock mounts.
Other new parts are a tongue box, stabilizer legs for the rear, tongue jack, 3 axis coupler, LED lights, Jeep style fenders, a 4' x 8' sheet of 16 gauge sheet steel and 1" x 3" rectangular tubing (some surface rust) for the lid build.

I have the floor already cut which is 1/8" tread plate. I'll throw in the set of 4Runner wheels so you can have a matching spare. Hell, the wheels are worth 2/3 of what I'm asking for the whole set up.

The body was sand blasted and I then lightly coated it with weld thru primer. But, its been sitting for over a year, so it has a nice patina.

Is this still available and if so, where are you located ?

How’s the bed condition, any holes or rust in it ?

Do you have the tailgate as well ?

Thank You !

Hey Eddie,

I just opened your links showing the whole trailer answering my questions on it’s condition.

Do you know what it would take to make it towable and I’m not too familiar with trailers but any idea if it would be easy to convert the lug pattern ?

Towable? Mounting the lights and finishing the front hitch set up. A days work to do it right.

Axle bolt pattern? I guess you might be able to find a set of adapters. I paid about $120.00 for a custom sized axle from redneck trailer supply (yes, thats the real name). A set of adapters will run more than that. a new axle would be in order, I think.

As long as the axle is current, ie, 1 and 1/16 or similar you can replace the hubs without issue. Easternmarine.com and etrailer are a good source to query and learn. Also Very helpful to me. From the looks of it in the photo, NO Problem!
